(Have You Ever Been To) Electric Ladyland (Record Plant, New York, NY, June 14, 1968)
Editors’ Notes Few artists changed the musical landscape like James Marshall Hendrix. Working with both The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys, the guitarist's run of classic albums between 1967 and 1970 offered a revolutionary fusion of blues, funk, and psychedelic rock. His feedback-drenched performances stunned contemporaries like Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, and he became notorious for his showmanship, ending many of his concerts with his guitar engulfed in flames. Decades after his tragically early death, Hendrix's songs remain jaw-dropping, and his skill as a guitarist remains unmatched.
